1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two blocks, each of mass m, are connected by a string of constant length 4h. Block A is placed on top of a table 3h from the side and Block B hangs over the edge. The tabletop is 2h above the floor. At time t=0, Block B is released from rest at a distance 1h. Use variables h, m, and g to answer the following: Determine the acceleration of block B as it descends. 2. Relevant equations [tex] a= \Sigma F/m [/tex] [tex] \Sigma F_x= (m)(a_x) [/tex] [tex] \Sigma F_y= (m)(a_y) [/tex] W=(m)(g) 3. The attempt at a solution I drew a free-body sketch of Block A and Block B and tried solving it by [tex] \Sigma F_x= 0 + T= (m)(a) [/tex] and [tex] \Sigma F_y= T - W_2= (m)(-a) [/tex]. This is where I get stuck because I try and plug T from the first equation into the second one and it doesn't end up right (I get a=a/g or g=1).
